Companies are focusing more on becoming flexible digital workplaces, largely in response to an increase in customer demand and remote working conditions.
Cloud computing — or enabling networking, storage, data security, servers, and analytics through the Internet — is taking the business world by storm. It’s an ideal way to provide accessibilit to enterprise applications and extend infrastructure without a huge capital expenditure.
In general, there are three choices of cloud service set-ups: public, private, and hybrid clouds.
The public cloud is just like it sounds — a technology that uses public data centers to host information and run applications. A private cloud allows clients to provision bespoke virtual resources on their own data center, making departmental chargebacks for resource consumption a breeze. Finally, the hybrid cloud integrates both public and private clouds, which can allow for more extensive virtualization and data redundancies.
Cloud developers are constantly looking for new ways to integrate cloud technology in business processes that span all industries, making cloud services a smart choice for any company looking to get a competitive advantage.
